The Sky Muster™ Educational Service allows students who study via distance education to request a separate internet service port which will allow those children to have access to data plans that are allocated for educational purposes.

What is Sky Muster™ Educational Service?

The Sky Muster™ Educational Service is designed to meet the special challenges of students who get their education via distance programs like School of the Air. This service will not be available for children who attend a brick and mortar school.

Who is eligible?

If you live in an area serviced by Sky Muster™, and have a school-aged child (K-12) enrolled in a recognised distance education program, you may be eligible to receive a Sky Muster™ Educational Service at your premises. You will also need to be verified by the nbn™ with the appropriate Education Department in your State or Territory. This service is offered only as a bolt on to your existing IPSTAR nbn™ Sky Muster™ service.


There are a great range of nbn™ Satellite plans available for Sky Muster™ Educational Services. Speeds range up to 25/5 Mbps with large monthly data allowances.

  • Your contract term, set-up and termination fee may vary subject to your choice of contract length. 1-month means minimum contract term is 30 days, no set up fee and no termination fee. An early termination fee applies to a 12-month and 24-month contract if you want to cancel IPSTAR service before your contract end date. 12-month means 12 month term, no set up fee and $150 early termination fee. 24-month means 24 month term, no set up fee and $250 early termination fee.
